GetGlasgowMovingA new campaign to Get Glasgow Moving will be holding a public meeting at Renfield St Stephen’s Parish Church, 260 Bath Street, G2 4JP from 7-9pm on Thursday 15 September 2016. The information about the event is as follows:

“Most people in Glasgow rely on public transport to get around (only 49% of households have cars), yet our public transport network is a total mess:

• Private bus companies continue to cut our vital services and increase fares so that they’re completely unaffordable.
• Glasgow Subway (built in 1896) still only serves a tiny area of our city and is the only underground in the whole world never to have been extended.
• Our overground trains are operated by a company (Abellio) owned by the Dutch state (not ours!)
• And our bike hire is run by a private company (Nextbike GmbH) based in Germany…

Compare this to Edinburgh, where publicly-owned Lothian Buses are popular with residents offering a comprehensive service and affordable fares. Read the rest of this entry »

The report is the first of its kind in the UK and only the second circle scan report in Europe behind Amsterdam. It offers an in-depth study of Glasgow’s potential to be a global leader in the circular economy, making the city only the second in the world to be assessed in such a level of detail.
